    First Pregnancy, Week 5 and HUNGRY...ALL the time

    I am constantly hungry and just about to enter week 5. I am not nauseous now, though I was Christmas Eve and the next 2 days. Blander things like pasta are what I crave the most. I'm taking my vitamins and trying to incorporate foods high in folic acid into my diet/cooking (leafy greens, beans, etc) I made and ate 2 bowls of chicken noodle soup with kale and cannelini beans and 2 hours later I was hungry again and made macaroni & cheese with peas, which I ate about an hour and a half ago. I'm seriously hungry again. Any foods that help with this? Oh and p.s. - I'm drinking lots of water and club soda. Any advice is so greatly appreciated for this first-time mommy-to-be!

    How about foods with more protein? It takes your body longer to digest protein so that might halep you feel full longer.
